The October Top Ten

6 November |

October top 10 -

Happy Monday! Last month, my friend Jennifer, from The Sister Studio, shared her top 10 items from the previous month. I thought this was such a good idea and what a fun way to show her followers what popular items were. That being said, I owe her full credit for the idea of today’s blog post!

Before we get into the top ten items from October, I want to let you know how I’m getting this data. I’m an affiliate influencer with rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any of my links that take you to products on my site, 90% of them are affiliate links that are tracking if a purchase was made through your click. If someone makes a purchase, then I get a small percentage of the total price of the purchase. Same is true for most other bloggers and influencers you follow.

On the backend, I can only see what the driving item is that got you to the retailer. I cannot see what other items were purchased, nor can I see who made the purchase. For example, if you click on this link (striped sweater from Old Navy) and you purchase this item plus three other items. I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and the striped sweater is what got you from my website to the retailers website.

I also use this information to understand what items you guys are liking and buying. If I am constantly linking to products that get hundreds of clicks each day, but no purchases are ever made, something is off. Is the price point too high? Is the retailer not trustworthy? I’m using this data to make sure that I am bringing the items you want to see each week! If I see that a cardigan from LOFT sold really well but is now sold out, I’m going to try to find a similar cardigan, buy it and style it so you have another option if you missed out on the first cardigan.

Now that you understand how the data works, let’s get into the top ten items that you guys purchased in the month of October:

purple cardigan -

1. Lidia Ribbed Open Cardigan from Goodnight Macaroon

lou and grey cardigan -

2. Lou and Grey Drop & Roll Cardigan
